ENDLESS ENTERTAINMENTS VIA THE 1OTT SOCIAL TV BOX

Gone are the days when streaming movies through the internet were painstaking with the requirement of total patience for the slow downloads. With the advancement of fiber optics internet connections being provided by so many Internet Service Providers (ISPs), you can practically get connected anywhere and anytime at your convenience. Thus, you have now the birth of 1OTT Social TV, the latest hype in providing over-the-top audio and visual contents via the internet. It’s the brainchild of Crowd Media Sdn. Bhd. under the umbrella of Syabas Technology, the company behind many award-winning digital entertainments such Popcorn Hour™ and more. Thanks to Vidcrowd Media Sdn. Bhd., the sole distributor for 1OTT products in Malaysia and marketing arm for ASEAN countries, Malaysians as well as many IPTV enthusiasts overseas would now be able to be pampered with various entertainments with just a few clicks via the remote control.

With our hectic lifestyle in chasing our dreams in providing better living standards for ourselves as well as our family members, we tend to forget that we are not robots and would need to spend some time to recuperate and reenergize our bodies for better performances. Other than having the required exercises to keep our body healthy, we would also need a relaxed state of mind to be more analytical in decision makings. Therefore, there’s always the need for some sort of entertainments, may it for our own self or together with your family members. That’s the reason you would need to own the 1OTT Social TV Box for the utmost entertainment experiences of your life time. It’s as easy as Plug-Connect Network-Play.

ALTERNATIVE CONNECTIONS

Though it’s highly recommended for those owning HDTV to purchase the 1OTT player for clarity, it does not mean that you can’t watch using other mode of display. For those still owning the older box type of TV, you can still use the product by purchasing the HDMI-Composite Breakout Cable. As for those without any TV but with PC monitor or laptop, you can still use the player if the unit is of higher range with a DVI-D (dual link) slot or HDMI slot with the purchase of a HDMI-DVI/HDMI-HDMI Cable. If you are using the DVI-HDMI cable for visual, then you’ll need to plug in the external speakers into the composite slot on the player for audio. However, you would still need to have a minimum of 2Mbps internet connection to view most of the Video-On-Demand (VOD). In case you are unsure of how those slots will look like, I have attached a photo below.

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCES

Let me share with you my experiences on some of the channels I’ve gained access to during my review on the product. Wow! I’m impressed with the quality and quantity of online entertainments which I can stream at ease with this product. On top of that, there are so many series and movies that I had missed out in the recent months and I could just watch them all at my convenience through their ever updated and comprehensive listing. The best part is that I can use the Resume Playback, Fast Forward & Rewind features without missing the action parts of the show, unlike viewing through certain paid channels.

1OTT09 photo 1OTT09_zpss2nojkiw.jpg

Once you have plugged in and gone through the selection of either WIFI or Ethernet, the main screen will pop out. The first thing to do is to enter the first code “VHTBWGC” into the “Enter Package Code” space on the top right hand corner of your screen via your remote control. After entering the code, press “OK”, then press “Agree” on the Terms & Conditions and you would be on the way to watch all the programs available on the set.

TV02 photo TV02_zpsvs562xtk.jpg

TV03 photo TV03_zpsbutmojhy.jpg

After the first step, you would get the benefit of using the “Announcement” to check on more updates. This is where you would get more package codes shown for latest shows. Just follow the steps above to enter as per your selection. These are 1OTT Video-On-Demand (VOD) package codes where the private apps are developed by Third Party developers. The library which pulls FREE contents from 100+ websites for direct streaming, has more than 12,000 titles from US, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Indonesia, etc. It’s updated on a daily or weekly basis.

TV04 photo TV04_zpsf9udfdil.jpg

Firstly, let’s have a look at the LIVE TV channels such as the Malaysian 1TV. There are all together 18 channels namely TV1, TV2, Bernama and more.

TV05 photo TV05_zpsmgqmprma.jpg

For those who love watching English movies, you are in luck to catch up with the movies that you have missed. Just click the “English Movies” icon and it would lead you into another page. This is where the fun part is. The first 5 icons are where you could watch more movies within based on their category. If you take a closer look at the top right hand corner, you would notice that there’s a counter to show you the quantity of movies available. With 100+ latest movies available, it would take me months before I could finish all. By that time, there would be more updated ones. That’s what I like about the 1OTT Social TV – endless entertainment!

TV01 photo TV01_zpsxa5wx8bz.jpg

TV07 photo TV07_zpsaskszoxe.jpg

As for the “English Series”, it’s also another category with almost a hundred series to view on, not amounting to the number of titles you would get to view in each of the series. OMG! That’s another few hundreds of titles to catch on.

TV08 photo TV08_zps6qfolmxs.jpg

For those who love to watch “Malaysian Dramas and Movies”, you are in luck too as there would be quite a number of interesting shows that you have missed. Currently, there are 24 movies and 35 dramas in these categories. I felled in love with the acting of Nur Suhada binti Jebat (commercial name Ayda Jebat), an actress cum singer. In the drama, M.A.I.D., she was so natural and comical, especially when she was in panicking situations.

TV09 photo TV09_zpsvdvg70ul.jpg

TV10 photo TV10_zpsmrcpzst4.jpg

You could also watch some “Thai Movies” with over 40+ titles here, which include horror, romance, friendship and more.

For “Japanese Anime” lovers, there are over 70+ titles with hundreds subtitles for you to explore. It’s really a heaven in here.

TV12 photo TV12_zpsjwdyski9.jpg

There are also some channels on Health and you could learn many beneficial tips on daily healthy lifestyles to applying Traditional Chinese Medication (TCM) into your life. I quite like these titles as I’ve learned some interesting tips to boost up my immune system as well as maintaining a general wellbeing.

TV13 photo TV13_zps0lwfndvo.jpg

1OTT Social TV player is not short of Documentaries too. It indeed had widened my knowledge on a lot of aspects in life, especially in the culture, tradition, history and science of other nationalities.

The 3S represents After Sales Services, Technical Support and Mobility Solutions – in short SERVICE, SUPPORT and SOLUTIONS. The opening ceremony was graced by Dato’ Dr Eric Chuah (CSL Group Managing Director), Mr Edwin Gan (CSL Country Manager) and 17 Master Key Distributors from all over Malaysia. Based on Dato’ Dr Eric Chuah’s opening speech, it was known that CSL has been advising Malaysians to go through the Switching Era together by converting their Mobile to Mobile Internet, Single SIM to Dual SIM and also change their perception of Unaffordable Mobile to Affordable Mobile. After all, CSL is the pioneer mobile manufacturer in Malaysia, thus we should always support our local products. Even prior to the launching, hundreds of potential buyers have been queuing up to take advantage of the great discounts of RM100 to RM400 for the smart phones and switch series.

The MI350 might not be the best smart phone in the market, but it certainly has a great responsive touch screen with great preloaded apps. At RM699, it definitely cheap and would just fulfill the basic needs of a new Android smart phone user. Compared to the MI410 (RM799) with has a larger touch screen (4.1” HVGA TFT LCD Capacitive Touch Screen Display) and running on Qualcomm 1Ghz Snapdragon, I still prefer the MI350 as it has dual SIM slots and more fine in design. You can read more of the MI350 review at my earlier post. For more information and future developments, you can check out CSL Malaysia’s official website for more updates.

We also had some social hours to mingle with the rest of the bloggers, researched on the functions of the top 5 models, video interviews with some of bloggers on their feedback on the phones and at the same time savor some of dishes from one of the prominent café s in Megamall – Life 1 Café.

We had Boxing Chicken (2pcs cut to 4pcs – RM6.80), Fried Fish Fillet (RM15.80), Chicken Nuggets (6pcs – RM4.80), Chicken Spaghetti Bolognese (RM11.80), Chicken Piccatta (if with rice – RM18.80) and fruit juice (Apple, Orange & Dragon Fruit – RM4.30). Somehow, the food did not impress me at all as most of the dishes were deep fried. Moreover, I was still recovering from my illness. To me, it was kind of salty for most dishes.

I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
